Frownland, Others Coming Soon to DVD

New company Factory 25 has announced their first DVDs for September and October, most notably an official DVD release for Ronald Bronstein's amazing Frownland, which has been making rounds across the country for the past two years. Kino will also be releasing a third collection of Avant Garde shorts from 1922-1955 on 24 November; unfortunately I don't know any details further than that. Palisades Tartan has also announced a box-set of Park Chan-wook's Vengeance Trilogy (Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Oldboy and Lady Vengeance) for the same date; I don't know of any of the specifics. The releases are in descending order of release.
